Spotlight on “Aden & Anais” (Review)



A LITTLE ABOUT ADEN + ANAIS: yhst-70545335102369_2055_6918651

When it comes to swaddling a baby in comfort and supreme softness, it doesn’t get any better than the swaddling cloths and baby hooded towel designs from Aden + Anais.

Every swaddling blanket, each hooded bath towel and every baby washcloth from Aden + Anais is crafted from soft, breathable muslin fabric for air flow and ultimate comfort.

Aden + Anais was formed by Australian mothers who moved to the United States and found that the swaddling cloths made of the muslin fabric they wanted were too small for their babies, Aden and Anais.

So they began making their own, adding baby hooded towel designs and baby washcloths to their soft muslin creations.

Before long, they were being asked, “where did you get that great swaddling cloth?” by doctors, friends and mothers out and about who all wanted these muslin swaddling baby items for their own babies. Hence, the company “Aden + Anais” was born.**



I received a wonderful set of muslin swaddling blankets to review. They came with adorable prints of gold fish and frogs…perfect for a little girl or boy. Both were very generous in size with breathable fabric.  i_mod

I remember wrapping my little ones like “tight little burritos” when they were little. It brought them comfort and peace as they slept. Most of the time the swaddling blankets were not quite big enough to wrap around the baby tightly. Clearly not the case with Aden + Anais.  With each wrap measuring 47 x 47 inches there is plenty of room to wrap your little “burrito”.

The swaddling blanket come in either a single, 2 pack or 4 pack edition each with a unique set of patterns and colors. My personal favorites are the red stars and the black cow prints.

While Aden + Anais have perfected the swaddling blanket they understand that now all new moms understand “how to” swaddle a baby and offer a step by step guide on their website in addition to a list of ideas on how your Aden + Anais Swaddling Blanket can be used beyond swaddling.

I love the concept of swaddling and the security it provides to a baby. I think Aden + Anais have created a superb product that will give any new mom a good nights sleep knowing her little one is safe and comfortable…well…at least an extra hour or two of sleep.
